Abstract

Using a database with information on over 1,500 researchers, statistical analysis was recently undertaken to test the hypothesis that technical STEM subjects were more societally useful than social science and humanities (SSH) subjects. Paul Benneworth describes the research process and the findings which suggest SSH research is just as useful as STEM research. A less stereotypical understanding of impact is required to maximise investments and create benefits for society as a whole.
